‘Numgeon’ Will Test Your Ability to Think (and Click) Fast to Survive Numeric Encounters

Ha. Numgeon. I see what you did there. Clever, much like the game itself, which has you clicking numbers in an attempt to thwart off enemies. Simple stuff, right? Sure, except... it isn't. You can't just go spamming that left mouse button all over the place after all, hoping you'll deal some sort of damage. Numbers have to be clicked in the right order or you'll be on the other end of the sword. Or staff. Or dagger. Or spell.

An Exciting Post-Apocalyptic Farm Life Awaits as ‘My Time At Portia’ Exits Early Access

Finally, a post-apocalyptic game that isn't all doom and gloom! I know how crazy that may sound, but... it's true. On top of that, My Time At Portia just looks like a genuinely good time. Which is also not something most would associate with such a setting. And yet here we are, ready to start a new life, rebuilding the town - and your dad's old workshop - through a mix of mining, animal husbandry, farming, and... there's even dungeon-delving and other RPG elements!

‘Professor Neely And The Death Ray Of Doom’ Spins a Web of Sciency Shenanigans

The Z-22 Vacuum Tube - a scientific breakthrough or an odd creation by a inventor long past his prime? Well, seeing how Spliner is more than a little eager to get his evil hands on it, I'd say... the former. Luring Professor Neely And The Death Ray Of Doom's protagonist into a (rather obvious) trap to get it might not have been his brightest moment though, as now more than ever, the odds are in Neely's favor. More or less.

Get Tactical Online in ‘Clatter’ to Prove Your Worth as a Robot Master

In the future, all sports will be replaced with robots duking it out, teams owned and managed by people with too much money. At least that's how I see the world in which Clatter exists. Now don't get me wrong: the whole thing does look like an absolute blast, top hats and all, but you know as well as I that spare parts don't come cheap; and you better believe that scraps will start to fly, from the moment the countdown in each arena has reached zero.

Survival of the Species: ‘Evolution’ Making the Leap From Board to Video Game

Evolve or starve. Those are your only options in this upcoming video game adaptation of North Star Games' popular board game, Evolution. It's much more than yet another race to evolve first, leaving everyone else behind, however, in that... you'll have to actually plan ahead while adapting to each new challenge. Who knows, you might even end up a multi-headed meat eating cyborg dino, chomping on every last opponent.

7DRL 2019 is Right Around the Corner With a Week Full of A-maze-ing Permadeath

The roguelikes are coming! The roguelikes are coming! Or they will be once this year's 7DRL challenge/game jam/competition kicks off in a short bit, as an entire week has been set aside for creating such wonderful genre entries. Nothing new there though as 7DRL dates back... well, many years, and I believe it has always been in the same month (spoiler: March), much like it will this time. So darn groovy.

Button Mashing Beat ’em Up ‘Pain Masher’ Is a Game of Patience (and Drugs) Aplenty

Button mashing is bad for several reason, the least of which is... it'll wreak havoc on your poor finger(s). I'm sure there's more too, but for now, let's focus on Pain Masher instead - a game that's all about being patient instead of mashing the 'z' key. Or go ahead and mash away, see how long you'll last (spoiler: not long!). Oh, meds are also a solution. Kinda.
